Flyers pull Pens series to 2-1

April 19, 2009 3:02:22 PM PDT
The Flyers showed flashes of the old Broad Street Bullies spirit that revved up the crowd, jolted the offense and got them back in their playoff series against Pittsburgh.

Jeff Carter and Mike Richards scored their first goals of the series early for a sorely needed fast start. Claude Giroux and Simon Gagne put the Flyers ahead for good in a 6-3 victory over the Penguins on Sunday.

Pittsburgh leads the opening-round series 2-1 and Game 4 is Tuesday night in Philadelphia.

Unlike last season's Eastern Conference finals when the Flyers flopped at home against the Penguins in Game 3, this year's team came out charged from the opening faceoff.
